6:01am
bruises during that shooting last night. but police are not saying how he sustained that injury. an even bigger question that still remains here is why the suspect was shot in the first place. police have not confirmed the reason for shooting or whether the suspects were shot by one officer or by both but they say that investigations are underway. >> preliminary reveals broken glass at the platform location. two knives at the same location. we have two to three credible witnesses at this time that are being interviewed as are the officers. san francisco p.d. responded almost immediately with bart p.d. they're involved with the investigation as well as bart p.d., san francisco's d.a.'s office. >> reporter: police have confirmed that the suspect was a white man. that one of the bart officers involved was also a white man. the other officer was an asian man. as you heard from the officer multiple agencies involved in this investigation this is being investigated as a criminal investigation by san
6:02am
francisco police department and bart is certainly going to look into policies and procedures and see if they were appropriately followed. for people commuting today on bart you don't have to worry about the civic center station closed down. while it was shut down last night after the shooting, there will be regular stops there today or stops that are regular for the 4th of july schedule. back to you. >> we are on holiday. kristy siefkan, live in san francisco, thanks. meanwhile three people confirmed dead following several shootings in the richmond area overnight. they all happened within just a few hours and a couple miles of each other last night. we're live at richmond police headquarters where they're trying to piece it together. good morning, elizabeth. >> reporter: good morning, frank. that's right. police investigators have a busy day ahead of them. four separate shootings, three people killed last night. the first happened around 8:30 at 39th and ohio. the person involved in that shooting was critically hurt but we're told is expected to survive. as you mentioned all of these shootings happened within just three hours of each other. the second shooting happened
6:03am
around 11:00 a few blocks away in fact. a 19-year-old man killed shot to death in his car while visiting people in the area 3200 block of center avenue. and just 15 minutes later at first and mcdonald avenue a 27- year-old was killed. a second person is the victim and is expected to survive. the fourth shooting happened in north richmond in contra costa county. sheriff deputies just confirmed with us at 10:40 p.m. on the 100 block of west ruby one person was killed in a drive bishooting, another person is still hospitalized. all these shootings happened within a couple miles of each other. it's too early to tell if these are related but definitely investigating that as a possibility. no evidence right now if they are gang related. still no motive and also no suspects in the shooting. i have a lieutenant with the richmond police department tells us actually the number of homicides in richmond has gone down in recent years. so this is one of the worst shooting sprees she can remember in recent memory.
6:04am
back to you. >> i guess, with three dead and multiple people down. thanks. federal investigators are looking into an emergency landing on a peninsula freeway where a plane actually struck a car while attempting a landing. the cessna 210 touching down in woodside near farm hill boulevard around 7:15 last night. f.a.a. says the plane's left mainlanding gear broke the back window of a car just driving on the freeway. f.a.a. says the pilot did issue a may day call before the landing. good news no reports of injuries on the ground or the pilot. the national transportation safety board is investigating. investigators are trying to determine if fireworks may have caused a fire that burned dozens of cars in south san francisco. the fire happened yesterday at an overflow lot for hertz rental cars on mitchell avenue. some time before 3:00 witnesses spotted cars in flames. you can see the flames there. firefighters found about ten
6:05am
cars on fire where strong winds fueling the flames. >> the wind blowing in the northeast direction that it is was catching the grass underneath the vehicles because it's an unpaved parking lot and therefore catching more vehicles and more vehicles. so we were chasing basically a grass fire under vehicles that were then catching on fire. >> 45 cars burned in all and the fire continued to smolder for hours. investigators did find some fireworks but not where the fire initially started. witnesses say they heard fireworks but it could have been a popping sound from cars catching on fire. eight remain missing after a boat sunk off of baja california. the boat carrying 44 people in all including 27 americans the mexican navy has confirmed one
6:06am
death. seven tourists including one crew member are still missing. the boat apparently hitting some rough waters sank immediately. coast guard is assisting in that search now. and the coast guard and local law enforcement agencies are increasing their presence on bay area waterways for the holiday. they will be running spot checks to make sure people have required safety gear on board their boat. nationwide nearly 500 people drowned a year ago. and 90 of those victims were not wearing life vests. also alcohol was a factor in 126 fatal boating accidents during the holiday last year. time now 6:06. not a lot of traffic to talk about, but the weather nothing but superlatives for lawrence karnow on this 4th of july. >> yes. this always a big forecast because we're worried about the fog. last year we had the fog roll in and it really hugged the coastline. today i think again we'll start to see some fog showing up. beginning to see some of that right here and eventually some swings down along the coastline. patchy fog to the beaches later
